Announcement of unavailability

For the next few weeks I will inaccessible, so if you decide to donations I will not be able to generate you a special code for donors. So I suggests holding off on such an action until I am available again.

In the next version: Cheat code to reduce randomness

Quite recently on Discord there was, once again, a discussion about randomness in the Movie Business. More specifically, some players have a problem with the game's overall assumptions about total randomness when it comes to judging the creators' performances in the film. I do not want to develop this topic again (as I mentioned it in the game manifesto Movie Business for Beginners), because I consider it to be the main mechanics of the game, which makes the Movie Business a unique production and has its own character.

However, I decided to give doubters the opportunity to experiment with this randomness and find out for yourself why turning off this element will negatively affect the long-term gameplay.

Well, in the 2022 Edition, donors will receive a new cheat code "I do not understand art", which will change one of the key algorithms of the game affecting randomness.

Screenwriter outsourcing

One of the proposals that has been scrolling among players for many years was the opportunity to hire an external screenwriter to create a script for you. In the next edition there will be such an option, although maybe in a slightly different form than some would like.

In the next version: Cult Characters and set update 65

After I informed you that in the next version you will be able to add own monsters, I have received signals that you would also like to be able to add cult characters directly from the game. It is true that here the functionality is not so critical (cult characters can be easily added from MovieStats) but after thinking about it, I found that in total why not give you such an option as well.

Poll: Soundtrack to the game

Some players once asked me why there is no music in the game. The answer was pretty obvious as an indie game without a budget it was difficult to get enough music to use in the game. In addition, there would have to be a lot of it so that it would not get bored with players quickly during several hour-long sessions with the game. Another problem would be the variety of players' tastes. So in the end it was better to give it up completely.

Today, however, the possibilities are much greater.

How to play Movie Business online

Biznes Filmowy nie posiada opcji grania zdalnie przez sieć i nie ma jej w najbliższych planach, niemniej w ramach testowania edycji 2020 oraz ogólnoświatowej pandemii ostatnio testowałem grę ze znajomym używając zdalnego połączenie. Wykorzystaliśmy do tego darmowy (do użytku niekomercyjnego) program Teamviewer to connect to other computers. It not only allows you to share the screen but also transmits sound. It worked really well.

So if you have any friends with whom you would like to play Movie Business, and you do not have the opportunity to meet, then this is a pretty good option to play online.

P.S. Yes I know that you are already looking forward to the new version ... the tests are still ongoing it was hard… ale chyba już jest bliżej niż dalej 🙂

In the next version... Scouting

Today, about one more idea before witcher inspiration. When starting the game, the player does not have enough cash resources to afford all the creators. Therefore, it often has to rely on young creators, fictional characters generated by the game. I have received voices from you that sometimes there are too few such characters. So I decided to introduce an additional option of hiring scouts looking for new talent.

In the next version... Creating profiles

Player profiles are one of the important elements of the game that allows not only to store player progress, trophies or his statistics, but also allows the use of the MovieStats website, where, among others, you can add your own suggestions of creators who would like to be in the game. Due to the development and expansion of the game's functionality, it is necessary to re-creation of the profile from time to time. Until now, it was a bit embarrassing if we already had our data in MovieStats. Now this process will be slightly easier thanks to the possibility of creating a new profile in the game, based on the existing profile in MovieStats.

Poll: Language versions of the promotional videos of the game

It seems to me that the marketing element of the Movie Business is somewhat neglected by me. The game is not popular enough as it could be and one of the facts is its insufficient promotion, e.g. the lack of more video materials presenting the game or selected elements of the game in a more detailed way.

In the next version... Cult scripts on the open market

Cult scripts are screenplays in Movie Business based on real films and data about them from IMDB website. They were introduced to add some flavore and immersion. It was not intended to be available for purchase for players. One player suggested the idea that you could buy an iconic scenario. Although I'm not sure if this is a good idea, this possibility will appear in the next version of the game.

In the next version... Press conferences and interviews

Some players pointed out to me that the game does not use the media aspect of Movie Business. Specifically, it was about contacting the press. In the new version, I will try to address this problem in the form of the possibility of organizing a press conference and interviews.

An example of a question in an interview after the festival.
